Maximalist Spring Palette

I embrace bold colors, big luscious texture, and pattern upon pattern. In the midst of a cold and snowy mid-atlantic winter, it's fun to lighten up your spaces with bright and bold spring-like colors. Here are some of my favorite multicolor palettes incorporating warm spring peaches and pinks and cool teals and mint green:

Coral Coterie, acrylic on canvas, 16" x 16". Original available. Prints available.

Take inspiration from this maximalist Chicago room on the Design Sponge.

Peachy Internodes, acrylic on canvas, 24" x 48". Original available. Prints available.

Beach Umbrellas, acrylic on canvas, 30" x 30". Original available. Prints available.

Dancing Birch Trees No. 2, acrylic on canvas, 30" x 30". Original available. Prints available.

Now you can play with your own color palettes using the Sherwin Williams Chip It Tool!

Playing Dress-up with Art

We loved playing dress-up as children, but as grown-ups, nothing is more fun than dressing up your walls with beautifully framed and matted artwork. After you've selected the perfect painting or print, next comes the daunting task of framing and matting! But why not try before you buy?? If you are as particular as I am, you will love this cool tool by Larson Juhl Framing Studio. I had a ball playing with all the different arrangements and colors of mats and frames. You can even print your design and take to your favorite framer.

If you REALLY want to nerd out, you can see what your print will actually look like in a room with the Wall App by Petapixel. So cool!

Check out the prints I played around with today:

February Spring: Print available.

Amoebic Party No. 1: Print available.

Amoebic Confetti: Print available.

Now your turn! Have fun playing dress-up :)
